Nothing says spring in the Valley, and generally throughout Squarebanks than the grow operations that are springing up everywhere; some are fairly fancy with banks of shops lights, seed starter, 4-packs, cells and flats. Many are yogurt & cottage cheese containers and anything else that can hold some soil and a seed - crowding window sills and sunny floor spots and anywhere a little plant can get a ray of sun.
I am, of course, talking about the annual rite of spring - starting the garden indoors.
It goes without saying too, that spring chickens are happy chickens. Now:
This surely was one sorry-ass long, dismal winter for this former cabin-dweller, and if I never go through the same sort of caca again, I will be forever grateful and happy...warmth, sun, and lots of deck sitting with various forms of booze got here just in time!
